Hazel (Coach)

Got more laughs for you today! Here’s Hazel telling about her great-granddaughter’s “vocal” abilities. BTW, want to know something my friends find ridiculous? I'm a preschool-humor-fanatic. I've got kids' jokes and riddles bookmarked on my Blackberry to whip out at any given moment - yup, embarrassing but true!

Maybe my great-grand three year old had become very vocal from living in childcare for two and a half years.  Always happy to enjoy her visits with me, I felt obliged to go out of my way to assure her health and safety.  When climbing the stairs, she was told to hold on to the banister.  Also, precautions were taken near the cook stove and certainly stepping in and out of the bathtub.

This particular evening in pajamas she yelled, “What are we going to do next, Coach??” Thinking about her doll, Coach, I squinted and questioned her.  She explained that I told her to do this and do that all of the time, so she called me “Coach”.

Next morning, I was awakened in the next room by “Granny, granny!! Do you know what you did?”  Sleepily, I answered, “What have I done wrong now?”  She replied, “You were breathing very, very loud.”  In other words, my snoring woke her up.
